  • Media Release

Austin, TX, July 17, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Today Lightspeed Systems released Lightspeed Rocket™, an addition to Lightspeed Filter that delivers end-to-end protection for every device and all network traffic.

The Lightspeed Filter utilizes advanced Smart Agents that are installed on school devices to provide filtering, reporting, and hassle-free SSL decryption. The Lightspeed Rocket supplements that with agent-less filtering for all other traffic and devices, including BYOD, guest, Internet of Things (IoT), and older devices.

The Lightspeed Rocket offers powerful features to ensure CIPA compliance, safety, and easy management:

  • Multiple levels of filtering (such as different policies for different schools or grades or groups)
  • User authentication to tie personal devices with school policies for holistic reporting and streamlined policy management
  • RADIUS integration
  • Powerful reports on web activity
  • Seamless integration with Relay policies and reports

The Lightspeed platform gives schools a complete solution for their technology programs with filtering, device management, classroom management, safety monitoring, and app analytics in a unified platform. The market-leading Lightspeed Filter component protects students and eases IT workloads with a comprehensive dynamic database, hassle-free SSL decryption, and anytime/anywhere filtering and reporting. Lightspeed Rocket policies and reports integrate directly into the Lightspeed platform, for a single solution and one cohesive management interface.

Schools using Lightspeed can install Lightspeed Rocket on their own servers or virtual machines, negating the cost and management of specialized hardware. Lightspeed Rocket is available now.
